Pics of my "tropical" New York City yard. I am in a USDA gardening zone 7 and I use plants that are hardy to our winters, are easy to overwinter indoors, or use as annuals to get the tropical look this far north.
Please ask for my permission and give me credit if you use any of my pics!
Thanks for looking!

Frost proof Gardenia bloom
Saw this bloom opening up on my Frostproof gardenia. I can't speak for other hardy Gardenia cultivators, but this one does great in a nice sheltered location here in NYC. It blooms on and off all summer long.
